Khelo India Youth Games 2019 Day 11 highlights
[Video Credit- Star Sports] Haryana dominate boxing as Maharashtra race ahead in medal tally at KIYG 2019 Haryana reaffirmed their strength in boxing as they added ten more gold to the eight they won a day earlier to take their tally to 18 from the sport at the Khelo India Youth Games. It also cemented their second place on the medals tally as they raced ahead of Delhi, who are in third place. Hosts Maharashtra picking up gold from virtually every discipline boosted their gold medal tally to 83 gold. Haryana are second with 59 gold, while Delhi have 47. Apart from 10 gold Haryana also bagged ten gold, eight silver and two bronze medals. However, Maharashtra also put up an impressive performance with four gold medals, one silver and nine bronze medals. It was Army Sports Institute trainees Barun Singh, Bhavesh Kattimani and Nikhil Dubey who contributed majorly to the Maharashtra gold hunt. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh claimed one gold each. Even though Haryana bagged a lion’s share of gold, the defeat of Haryana’s Ankit was the big surprise of the day. Haryana were deprived of another gold, as Shashi Chopra of Haryana was unable to fight due to injury and the gold went to Himachal’s Vinakshi. In the 64kg class, the World Youth silver medalist and Asian youth gold medalist Manisha outboxed Punjab’s Harpreet Kaur. Manisha was at her best and justified her reputation with a clinical win. Another upset was registered in the girls’ category, when Haryana’s national bronze medalist Sapna proved better than World Youth bronze medalist Astha Pahawa (UP) in a close 3-2 fight. Astha banking on her international exposure, displayed a better game in the first round, however as the game progressed Sapna changed her game plan to close range punching. This unsettled Astha and she lost valuable points. Despite trying her best in the third round, she failed to recover from the loss she suffered in the second. In Boys’ 60kg class Harivansh, who has youth national bronze medal, defeated World Youth bronze and Asian Youth bronze medalist Ankit of Haryana 4-1. #KIYG2019 #KheloIndia #KheloIndiaYouthGames http://www.khelnow.com http://bit.ly/2RCFnxr
